This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800’s. The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefits…sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year ‘round stout.

On draft at Tank’s Tap Room in Tampa. Poured dark black but not thick with a nice frothy/creamy head. Mix of cream or milk, and dark caramel, coffee, and chocolate.

Pours dark black/brown with a small brown head, as I believe a good stout should. What this beer lacks in aroma, it makes up for everywhere else. Perfectly balanced roasted barley and sweet, sweet malt. Little hop intervention, which surprisingly doesn’t bother me at all in this particular brew. I love it I love it I love it. Too bad it was gift from my folk’s trip to colorado.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Bottle. Very dark, red-brown pour with a thick tan head. Big ole aromas of toffee, dark chocolate, and toast. Those flavors too, plus wood smoke and coffee with cream. Wish I’d bought more than one! _________ Just tried this again. I really like this beer.

(draught sample) Dark brown- near black with tan head. Roast malt aroma. Flavor is sweet with hints of chocolate. Would be a great beer to make a stout float with.

Bottle. Pours a dark dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and cream. Tastes like milk chocolate and coffee, slight bitter initial bite but smoothes out and ends sweet.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Mostly coffee and milk chocolate overall. Fluffy light brown head on an extremely dark beer. Smooth hint of bitter coffee with a slight milk or cream aspect. A bit of sugary sweetness more than the cream comes through.

Black beer with simple tan head. Smells of chocolate and toffee. Smooth with layers of milky sweetness and light coffee. Not overly filling, easy to drink. Solid beer.

Strykzone (6758) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Very dark pour with plenty of amber highlights. A big tan two tiered head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Some roasted notes as well. Flavor is as the aroma. It is plenty sweet and the feel is powdery. You may never find an easier drinking stout or one that works well in hot weather. A very nice beer.

Bottle. Lots of coffee and roasted malt in the nose and mouth. Some ripe fruits in the nose, some authentic milk flavor as well. Somewhat creamy, quite drinkable. Solid.
